My intellectual words become physical concrete

I noticed a sidewalk trip hazard on the south side of West Saint Marie Street between Carver Avenue and Dunedin Avenue in Duluth, Minnesota.  

This hazard was there for at least three years and was a hazard for bicyclists, those with reduced walking mobility, and wheelchair users.  

I photographed the hazard and then wrote an opinion letter for the Duluth New Tribune.  This is the letter that was published.

A few days ago, the defective sidewalk slabs were replaced with new sidewalk.

I wonder how many other such sidewalk hazards exist, but no one calls attention to these?

Pre-dawn images of Lake Superior

I used my camera’s flash to bring out the beautiful colors of the sky.

Three more things I found in Jay Cooke State Park

A section of the Superior Hiking Trail

A sign by the swinging bridge

An unusual appearing plant by the employee garage

The swinging suspension bridge spanning the fast and powerful St. Louis River

I just followed the signs to the bridge

It took some planning and legwork to get this image

What a beautiful bridge that has been rebuilt several times in the past one hundred years

On the bridge, looking south

Only the brave and experienced white water kayak on those swift waters
